Named after the legendary team from Argentina where soccer star Diego Maradona got his start, the San Diego Boca FC follows in the fleet footsteps of its titular inspiration by promoting professional and youth soccer through its involvement in the National Premier Soccer League. In the 2011 Holiday Soccer Classic, herds of brightly bedecked athletes will rampage across an enormous plane to earn the confidence of a whirling, chiaroscuro globe by wooing it with feats of balance and head-butting. After making it into the postseason during the team’s inaugural 2010 season, the Boca FC played to standing- or shoulder-sitting-room-only crowds in the 2011 season. Fueled by the furious blocks and sneaky goals of Justin Picou, the San Diego club hopes to pose a challenge worthy of the CD Chivas Guadalajara U-20, one of Mexico’s oldest and most titled teams.
